Really very clean and nicely located outside of the town and literally across the road from the beach, and if you're really very lazy there's a lovely pool there too and a supermarket nearby 2 mins away. Loved it was so clean and pretty spacious (for 4 adults in a 2-bed apartment). Shower floods randomly but aside from that, zero worries. We rented bikes and cycled to the town About 1km by the coast. I'd go back.

picale is located directly across the road from the beach which we were on every day due to the lovely weather at the end of sept! spacious rooms that are very clean. No oven or microwave but plenty of places to eat nearby and a huge supermarket two mins away.Some rooms have street views and some are overlooking the pool and the interior courtyard. courtyard area can get very noisy as there seems to be an echo in that area. The old town is a twenty minute stroll and it is beautiful.we had a very enjoyable break at the Picale.

My wife & I stayed in these apartments (Room 1E) for 8 days after staying in similar apartments across the road. (Buganvilla Apartments). The set up is similar. The bedroom was OK, but the bed was far too soft for my taste. The bedroom had not enough storage space in comparison to Buganvilla but if you are travelling light you should be OK. Room had quite a few marks on the walls where a mosquito had been splatterd by the previous occupants. There were few electric sockets and those that were working were sometimes difficult to plug in to. Overall the bedroom was quite clean. The bedding was not changed in the time we were there.

The bathroom was small but was an improvement in size over our previous apartment. Nice space to put all your toiletries and dirty washing. It was let down by the shower which didn't drain properly which was really quite annoying. The toilet didn't flush either so I had to temporarily remove the top of the cistern to flush it by hand. It was like that the first day we moved in. Apart from that, reasonably decorated. The sink was big and for once, lit well.

The lounge/kitchen area was comfortable enough. The oven had gas hobs which I like for cooking. However, no oven and no microwave oven either - that was disappointing. Else, all the utensils and cutleryand crockery you need to fix holiday meals. The absence of an electric kettle may be a bit of an inconvenience to some people who don't fancy boiling a pan of water every time they want a hot beverage. Plenty of hot water to wash up with.

There was a sofa-bed in the lounge which was quite long. The TV had absolutely no reception at all. When I first booked the apartment I enquired about the standard of TV and was told it was good. Now it may be asking too much for staff to take that much notice of what you say but I think that for a little effort the receptionist could have made sure the TV was working as I especially asked about it.

There was no washing machine in the apartment - OK it's the same in many apartments but there were no facilities for you to wash them in a communal room either. And this brings me to a point I found about this place. Upon asking reception about washing they said somebody could collect it and wash it for us but the price was incredibly expensive. If you wanted the aircon on then you had to pay for that (Buganvilla was free). You could use the internet in the foyer only and it was hellishly expensive. I asked if I could print out my flight tickets I had just booked in the foyer, on their printer. The answer was a curt 'No'. Many other instances of quite poor customer services and anything you asked about invariably involved the receptionist quoting how much it would cost. There were 2 receptionists. It was like 'Good Cop, Bad Cop'. One was extremely helpful, resourceful, polite, and friendly... the other was not any of those things. If you wanted to use a safe then you had to pay extra. These were located in reception which meant that during siesta or after the hotel reception closed for the night you had no way of getting your valuables. OK. Not too bad for the night but if you wanted to set off early the next morning you had to take your valuables out early evening the previous night. This rather defeats the purpose of having a safe.

In summary, with a little effort in customer services and the small points I have picked up on it could be really quite a nice place to stay.

We stayed from 23 Sep to 1 Oct towards the end of the season which meant that this hotel's bar/ cafe was shut. It would have livened the place up a bit and given one a change to meet other guests if this had been open. The games room for the kids was shut too!

Lovely hotel in a great location only feet from the beach, staff very helpful and friendly. Would definately go back. Rooms spotless clean and great restraunts and a great bar beside hotel. Nice place to go to for an Autumn break.

Room Tip: Room 3a has a wrap around balcony over looking the beach.
